The Schaltz

The Schaltz: This is another Doug-Protsik-original, featuring music written specifically to accommodate the combined steps of two different couple dances – namely the schottische and the waltz. The tune is in ¾ time, but the melody induces the hop step of the schottische while maintaining the 1-2-3 basic waltz beat. This challenging (but fun!) dance has been demonstrated at some of the Old Grey Goose and Maine Country Dance Orchestra dances over the years, and Doug says “I can’t wait till it’s the latest craze at the discos! (But, alas, I have been waiting since 1989 when I composed it.)"
